Adding a Full Crawl Space System in Petoskey, MI

Adding a Full Crawl Space System in Petoskey, MI

Adding a Full Crawl Space System in Petoskey, MI Adding a Full Crawl Space System in Petoskey, MI

This crawl space came a long way during the remodel process. As you can see in the after photo, the entire crawl space was covered with the plastic white liner CleanSpace. The moisture impenetrable barrier is perfect for dirt crawl spaces where it’s easy for moisture and water to pass through. CleanSpace can be wrapped around other objects, like the piers seen in the photos, to prevent moisture from affecting them as well. If moisture does enter this crawl space from another source, one of the other two products installed will swiftly deal with the problem. The blue box in the after photo is a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. Its smaller size makes it the perfect for crawl spaces, and its self-draining ability makes it great a complement to the SmartSump sump pump system, also in the after photo. The smart Sump will keep this crawl space continually dry by pumping out any water trapped under the vapor barrier. A full crawl space system like this will cover any and all possible problems for the homeowner.

This Mackinac City, MI was dealing with the-ever-so common leaky and moldy crawl space. To give the customers a solution that works and help their energy costs at the same time, our crew installed the Ultimate Energy Saver package. The package includes two different types of insulation: SilverGlo Walls and Terrablock foam for the floor. These products will help better regulate the temperatures of the crawl space and provide a waterproof solution at the same time. Both are made of waterproof material and won’t allow water or humid air (the key ingredients to mold growth) to leak into the crawl space. Don’t look too hard for Terrablock in the after photo. The key to keeping mold and water out is the CleanSpace encapsulation. That’s the white, plastic liner seen in the after photo and it covers every inch of the crawl space floor, including the Terrablock foam. Impenetrable by water vapor or moisture, a CleanSpace encapsulation is just what this crawl space needed to put a stop its leaking water and energy problems.

While installing a full waterproofing system into this home in Petoskey, MI, the crew also upgraded the owner’s previous sump pump. If a home is having trouble keeping water out, we almost always recommend the TripleSafe sump pump - our most reliable model. As you can see in the after photo, the pump comes equipped with two different discharge lines. That is because the sump also includes two different backup pumps: one in case the original pump becomes overwhelmed and the other for power failure. With so much water being discharged, a single line could prevent the system from living up to its full potential or, even worse, it could cause the system to backlog and fail. As our most reliable model, it’s also our most expensive. But we think that the peace of mind makes it worth it. This basement will be protected from floods, no matter how much wet it gets.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

Water and moisture in the basement means mold and rot. Both of which are dangerous for your home and your family. Ayers Basement Systems protects you from mold and rot by properly waterproofing your basement or crawl space and giving you a transferable, lifetime, dry-basement warranty. 

Basement Waterproofing System in Petoskey

We can fix:

  • Wet Basements
  • Damp or Moldy Crawl Spaces
  • Leaking Wall Cracks
  • High Humidity in the Space
  • Uncomfortable Temperatures

Wet Basement Waterproofing

As members of Basement Systems, the international network of waterproofing contractors, we receive advanced training and access to proven, patented basement waterproofing products. The training and products come together in a complete basement waterproofing system. The system consists of an interior drainage channel that runs along the inner perimeter of the basement. Any entering water is collected in the channels and drained to a hidden sump pump which pumps the water out of your home. The addition of an energy-efficient basement dehumidifier keeps the relative humidity low enough to prevent mold growth. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation

We use a similar waterproofing system to keep your crawl space dry and protected. A insulated matting and vinyl vapor barrier are laid on the floor and walls of the crawl space. The crawl space vents are sealed and a sealable entryway is installed. The system keeps water and moisture out of the space. A crawl space sump pump and dehumidifier complete the system removing any water or moisture that manages to enter the space from upstairs. No water in the basement. No mold or rot. No uncomfortable floors above the crawl space. 


Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Foundation problems are serious challenges that need to be immediately addressed. Ayers Basement Systems is Petoskey's trusted foundation professional offering permanent foundation repair and restoration services. 

Foundation Pier System in Petoskey

We can fix:

  • foundation wall cracks
  • Separating floors
  • Soil issues
  • bowing walls
  • Sunken concrete slabs

Professional Foundation Repair

If you are dealing with a sinking or settling foundation issues we have solutions. Depending on the foundation problem you are facing we have different piering systems. The piers are drilled down into the earth to find load bearing strata. These piers include helical piers, push piers, slab piers and helical deck piers. For bowing basement walls we can use wall anchors, wall support systems or sprayed concrete to correct the problem. We even fix sunken floors over crawl spaces with support jacks. 

Updated Mudjacking Techniques

Using an updated mudjacking technique (aka slab jacking) we lift and level sunken concrete slabs. The traditional mudjacking process requires a thick mudslurry be pumped beneath the sunken slab through holes drilled through it. The pressurized mudslurry lifts the sunken slab back to its original position. Rather than use mudslurry we instead use PolyLEVEL, an expansive polyurethane foam. The foam expands to fill any gaps beneath the slab. It is much lighter and puts less stress on the soil base. It also cures within hours rather than days. We offer the best solution for concrete lifting and leveling in Petoskey.



Job Stories From Petoskey, MI
IceGuard Helps To Prevent Wet Basements In Cold Winter

Our customers called us with some trouble, during heavy rain the house would start leaking.  Ayers was able to help fix those issues by installing a new sump pump and a waterproofing solution called WaterGuard that helps to move water to the sump pump.  For the discharge of the sump pump, it is important that the water gets outside of your home and we recommend installing IceGuard.  IceGuard attaches to your discharge pipe outside of your home to act as protection against frozen pipes that would otherwise cause a flood in your basement or crawl space.  This cheap addition to your home allows for more protection against cold Michigan winters and will help to keep your space nice and dry.

Ongoing Water Issues Resolved in Petoskey, MI

Ben D. of Petoskey, MI has had water issues in his basement for years. Every time it rains, water comes into the basement. There was a dehumidifier in the basement and it took care of mildew, but there was still an odor. So, Ben gave us a call.

Our solution? The SuperSump premier sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. The SuperSump is a sump pump specifically designed to keep your basement dry for long periods of time. Capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour, it is suitable for heavy water intrusion.

The WaterGuard drain rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once that water is collected, it is redirected to the sump pump -- or in this case, the TripleSafe -- to be pumped up and out of the home.

Wet Basement with Wood Foundation in Petoskey, MI

Sharon S. of Petoskey, MI had water leakage in her basement for years before she gave us a call. This can cause immense issues for a basement -- issues that we, the professionals, can take care of.

Our solution? The TripleSafe sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. The TripleSafe is a sump pump that provides three levels of protection against water leakage. Whether it be normal water supply, heavy volumes of water, or in the case of a power outage, this sump pump will keep your basement dry. For normal water supply, the Zoeller ⅓ horsepower pump functions. At a heavier level, the Zoeller ½ horsepower pump activates. In the case of a power outage, the UltraSump backup sump pump will pump water on a backup battery.

The WaterGuard systems rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing collecting water that gets into the basement from outside. After this water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump -- the TripleSafe -- to be pumped up and out of the home. 

Sharon, you can rest easy with these systems from Ayers in place.  

Triple Threat in Petoskey, MI Crawl Space

Mary M. of Petoskey, MI had dampness and standing water in her crawlspace. Her foundation is cinderblock and the home was built in the 1980s. With this being said, you can probably see that she had a problem. Thankfully, she called us.

We remedied this situation by installing three of our patented products: the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system, the SaniDry crawl space dehumidifier, and the SmartSump crawl space sump pump. 

CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off Mary's crawl space from the surrounding elements. No air, dirt, or water will get into this crawl space with this installment. SaniDry is a self-draining dehumidifier that adds another barrier of protection against water vapor. SmartSump is a sump pump built for crawl spaces. These products all fit together like a glove. 

Say goodbye to standing water with this trio.

Complete Waterproofing in Petoskey, MI

Bill C. of Petoskey, MI had water in his crawl space. This can cause serious issues within the home such as sticking doors and windows and peeling paint. So, Bill gave us a call.

After a complete inspection, we decided the best way to remedy this situation would be to install our SmartSump crawl space sump pump and the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. We started with the SmartSump -- SmartSump is a self-draining sump pump that can collect 109 pints of water without its collection tray having to be emptied. SmartSump works perfectly with the CleanSpace system as well.

Next, we installed the CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off Bill's crawl space from the surrounding elements. No dirt, dust, cold air or water will enter with this system in place. CleanSpace is also made with an anti-microbial component, preventing the growth of any mold. 

Complete Waterproofing in Petoskey, MI

Rebecca M. from Petoskey, MI has a basement that had french drain system that no longer works. Since the snow has started to melt, her basement began to fill with water. Her home was built in 1968, has poured wall, and has a sump pump. The basement is not finished and there was water coming in from the outside.

Our fix? The WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard is a customer and crew favorite, offering a great way to protect your home against water intrusion. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, collecting water that enters in through the basement walls. That water is then redirected to the sump pump in the home and pumped outside.
